Played 18 in the professional’s (Robert Giles) prize starting at 12:42. Sean McNulty joined me in the buggy. Brian Farrell walked. I was going well until a squall hit us on the 15th tee. I played short off the tee with a 4-iron but chalked up a 9 on the hole. I hit 2 shots to get out of the left trees and I think I took 4 putts. Followed with an 8 on 16. Generally, I played tidy golf. My score 93 – 15 = 78. Never took my 3-metal or rescue out of the bag except to hit tee shots on 1 and 7. Took a shower and changed my clothes. Drank water from my blue TUI credit union drinking bottle and quaffed a pot of tea along with a scone, butter, jam. Sean gave me €5 towards the buggy. Tottenham defeated Manchester United 2 – 1. Made porridge: a cup of pin-head oats, 1 ½ cups of milk, 2 cups of water, 2 spoons of white sugar, the dregs of the bottle of Powers’ Gold Label which I won in Greenore a few months ago. Ate, too: sliced ham, Brie, green stuffed olives; 2 Kiwi fruit; a cup of coffee. I ate no supper although I stayed up until 00:30 watching the finish of The Players. Si Woo Kim won by 3 from Oosthuizen and Poulter in joint second. An exhibition of chipping and putting. I did well in that department myself today. I ate pan bread, butter, brie, apricot preserve; tea: for breakfast. Bought 2 KitKats in Bellurgan where I withdrew €100 this morning. Met the man who was parked beside me in Gyles’ Quay yesterday in a black Mercedes. He recognised me and heard the music I was playing on my car radio yesterday. Very pleasant individual. Who is he? Gave one of the KitKats to Sean McNulty on the 13th fairway. Sean out of sorts recorded a NR and did not play a lot of the holes at all. Brian Farrell scored much the same as me. His handicap is 8. Eamonn alone in the house all day got through a lot of corrections. Rosanna away caddying in Manaan Castle. Greenore lost. Paul Smyth rang. Greenore defeated in the semi-final of the Pierce Purcell. Paul was rested for that match. I heard that young Matthew Giles scored 64 today in his father’s prize.
